Did you ever see pomegranates hanging on a tree? They are nature’s Christmas baubles! Jonny and I bicycled into a pomegranate orchard yesterday. At first I wasn’t going to bring a camera. And I wasn’t even going to go…I thought, “Oh it’s so silly, I shouldn’t be wasting
my time doing this…”
But then I thought, carpe diem. I’ll miss the moment. And I was right because…the very next day, they were harvested. They’re all gone! So what’s the lesson?
Find one thing you’ve been putting off doing…and do it. Set an egg timer if you think you’re going to get overwhelmed. Write it down. Call a friend and say what you want to do. Tell me what you avoided doing but did. Sometimes we think we’re taking care of ourselves by being lazy…but we’re not. Sometimes we think we’re indulging ourselves…but we’re not. We can enjoy life’s bounty without feeling guilty that we “should” be doing something more important.
It’s a nice planet. We’ll take it. That’s from Mars Attack – the movie. But it is a nice planet. Enjoy it. (There are other great lines from movies on the site here.)
Take care of yourself. Do something you don’t want to do. Do something you feel you shouldn’t be doing. Do something.
